I've always been skeptical of drinks that are green. It just seems wrong. I have no problem eating green food, but green drinks...forget it!That's all changed now. I'm not sure what prompted my change of heart, it may have been the color of this smoothie and the fact that she made it sound so delicious. Or it could have been that we have a couple of slightly overripe bananas that need to be put into something where I won't be able to taste them (I am not a huge fan of bananas, but if I'm going to eat them they must still be slightly green). Perhaps I am tired of my usual smoothie concoction (which is delicious, but it has yogurt in it...and sometimes, I just don't want yogurt). Anyway, I decided to give it a go. I used 1 banana, 1/2 cup frozen tropical fruit mix (from Costco...it's my favorite smoothie fruit by far), 1/2 cup crushed ice, a handfull of spinach. Side note: I had no idea that our refrigerator made crushed ice. I mean, I saw the little button, but never tried it...it really works! I put all my ingredients in a Magic Bullet cup with a little water (I thought this would be gross, but just add enough to make everything blend together) and blended away! I know it looks totally gross...but it wasn't. You can't really even taste the spinach. It did taste a little green, but no flavor was directly identifiable as spinach. You should try it...you might like it!
